Writing: Best Practices

The Write Way: Using Patterns, Paragraphs, & Poems to Enhance Essential Writing Skills (Grades 1-6 and 7-12)


This workshop will present powerful and practical ideas for implementing effective writing activities in the Language Arts classroom. This workshop will focus on how a guided, process approach to teaching writing can help students become more proficient, knowledgeable, and self-directed writers. As such, this workshop will present lots of guided writing strategies for teaching students to craft patterns, paragraphs, and poetry. Since the workshop is grounded in the notion that we learn best by doing, workshop participants will engage in a number of sustained writing activities throughout the day.


Presented by: Keith Polette
